Healthy recipe for honey cinnamon butter that is a perfect topping for toast, rolls, or a bowl of oatmeal. Only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to make!
The honey cinnamon butter that some restaurants serve with their bread is very popular with patrons.
While certainly delicious, the ingredients are no doubt quite shocking. For example, I couldn’t even find a list of ingredients for Texas Roadhouse’s cinnamon butter anywhere online. 😲
First of all, these whipped spreads almost certainly aren’t butter at all. They consist of at least some (if not mostly) vegetable seed oil margarine.
Secondly, the sweeteners are either GMO high fructose corn syrup or GMO white sugar.
Third, there are undoubtedly numerous additives and fillers mixed in to ensure shelf stability and consistency of texture and taste.
One, two, three strikes you’re out!

I recommend storing your honey cinnamon butter on the counter in a traditional French-style butter crock. It will last and stay naturally soft and spreadable for weeks!

I’m not lazy at cooking but it feels good when you know it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare something for you and the family. Cinnamon and honey are almost my everyday thing. And I like the fact that it takes only 5 mins to get this done with only 3 ingredients.
While looking for a Butter Crock, a “water line” is mentioned. I double checked your recipe for the honey butter & didn’t notice anything about a water line. What is that about?
The bottom part of a butter crock is filled with cold water and the top with butter which then can be kept on the counter at room temperature and safely remain soft. This is not necessary for the recipe.
